A Spiritual Question

Document Type


Publication Date



The author explores spirituality and counseling through research poetry created from in-depth interviews with nine counselor educators. The purpose of the narrative study was to explore the religious and spiritual lived experiences of counselor educators and to recognize the impact these experiences may have when counselor educators teach and supervise counseling students. Because spiritual and religious values are an integral element of humanity and development, continual analysis and increased competency for counselors and counselor educators is essential to better serve clients. Poetry, distilled from counselor educator responses, provides insight into thoughts and feelings related to religion and spirituality and how those thoughts and feelings foster or inhibit counselor training.
